ABOUT

Palestrina London, Turnell & Gigon’s specialist hand embroidery company, carefully create the world’s most beautiful handmade embroideries collaborating with discerning interior designers across the globe.

Each embroidery is a unique work of art, which can be made to your individual specification. It takes many hours of dedication to create these masterpieces with exacting attention to detail as every stitch is sewn by hand. Whether your project calls for cushions, bed hangings, curtains, pelmets, chair backs, walling, screens or fabulous pieces of hand-embroidered art, we’ll take meticulous care of every detail.

From discussing initial working concepts, developing designs, techniques, threads and ground cloths, to completing your magnificent hand embroidery, Suzanne Whitehead and her team will guide you through the entire process.

Suzanne has over 30 years in the textile industry and has spent the past twelve years almost exclusively developing bespoke embroideries for prestigious clients. Projects she has worked on have included interiors and artworks for a private airbus, for private jets, superyachts, luxury hotels, casinos, world-renowned jewellery stores, royal palaces and international film companies.

The options are infinite when combining Palestrina London with Royal Warrant holding group Turnell & Gigon’s extensive wealth of luxurious ground cloths, colours and textures. Gorgeous silk damasks are just waiting to be adorned with antiqued silver and gold metallic threads or with coloured artsilk yarns.  The patience and skill required to make these exquisite works of art is almost unfathomable and with constant development and innovation there are always new areas to explore. From understated designs in subtle cordwork to embellishment with semi-precious stones and leather or hand painted silk appliqué it is always possible to create something entirely unique.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Turnell & Gigon showroom in Chelsea Harbour and to having the opportunity of sharing with you our passion for these exceptionally beautiful bespoke hand embroidered textiles.
